The Washington Assistive Technology Act Program (WATAP) provides resources and services to persons who face challenges related to disability and aging to help in the selection and use of assistive technology, also known as AT. AT helps make tasks easier or possible in school, at work, at home, and in the community. WATAP serves seniors and persons with disabilities, and their circle of support, including family members, caregivers, employers, service provider professionals, educators, and others seeking AT expertise.
WATAP is located at the University of Washington Center for Technology and Disability Studies (UWCTDS), within the Center for Human Development and Disability (CHDD). Our work is supported by a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Community Living, and other funding sources.
